CHUBBY AND THE GANG: All Along the Uxbridge Road: 7”

Containing personnel from Arms Race, Violent Reaction, and Gutter Knife, Chubby And The Gang provide two killers tunes blessed with hints of surf, rock’n’roll and 1970s punk. It’s a long way from rocket science but, boy oh boy, these straightforward songs have more infectiousness than can often be found on a whole album. Total raucous fun. Some records transcend the need for words and this is one of them. –Rich Cocksedge (Static Shock, staticshockrecords.limitedrun.com)
